Since 1953, when the first person set foot on the pinnacle of the world, many climbers have attempted to achieve the same goal. Some of them succeeded others did not manage to cope with their own weaknesses or harsh weather conditions. Unfortunately, many were not able to withstand difficulties and even lost their lives. Climbing Mount Everest and reaching its summit is a dream of every serious climber, and they are able to sacrifice a lot of time and money to succeed. None, however, is able to do that alone and needs help of many other people they may rely on. Those people are organizers and experienced guides who take responsibility for Mt Everest expedition preparations as well as climbers’ safety.

If you are such a mountaineering lover overwhelmed by one thought only, and you have been preparing for a long time to go on Everest expedition your only choice should be Adventure Zambuling Treks (P) Ltd. We are an expedition company that has been operating since 1996 and has helped lots of experienced climbers make their dreams come true. It is a number one licensed company that has led hundreds expeditions on Mount Everest and many more on other eight- thousanders, let alone personalized quests and treks which can be counted in thousands.

During the years of our operation we have developed our skills and now we are able to organize any expedition and support mountaineers providing them with everything they need except for personal climbing equipment. Not only do we specialize in legal organization of our expeditions but also give climbers the opportunity to achieve success as painlessly as it is possible. Are you interested in our services and you want to fulfil your dream of standing on Mount Everest peak? We are there for you, so just enroll on one of Everest expeditions in the near future, and we do our best to help you get to the summit which will be one of your most wonderful experiences.

It is worth knowing that Adventure Zambuling Treks (P) Ltd. got a licence from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation of Government of Nepal and can organize expeditions in the Himalayas. There are not any foreign companies that can get such a permit or can operate without it. Only Nepalese companies are allowed to provide all kind of support for mountaineers. Even if you decide to choose any western company, it is allowed to operate through a Nepalese one and you will have to pay extra for intermediaries. That is why it is better to contact us directly and another reason is the fact, that we take responsibility for your safety, and provide you with all legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services once you get off the plane.

As it is the most difficult to get to the top Himalayan mountain, Mount Everest is also the biggest dream of many climbers who want to finish their career with such a climbing experience that requires overcoming the obstacles that their bodies build. However, they also have to understand the risk and have some experience. Climbing Everest is an enterprise that has to be prepared in detail but before climbers head for the Himalayas they have to devote a long time to build stamina and train to get used to harsh conditions such as low temperatures and low-oxygen environment at higher altitudes. It is worth remembering, that the most difficult it is to get by in the “death zone” at 8 000 metres above the sea level. The body starts to rebel against the lack of oxygen. Even the strongest climbers may experience impaired judgement, strokes, heart attacks or difficult to overcome altitude sickness. Nevertheless, every year some mountaineers decide to climb Mount Everest to prove themselves they are able to do it. To achieve the set goal climbers have to acclimate to the lower rate of oxygen in the air before they attempt to get to the peak. It can be done by going on a few trips from Everest Base Camp each time higher. Doing this they allow their body to produce more haemoglobin that carries oxygen from lungs to the rest of the body preventing it from dying. That is why every Mount Everest expedition has to be properly prepared, and this can only be done right by such an experienced company as Adventure Zambuling Treks whose employees are Sherpa guides coming from the community known to have spent almost their whole lives trekking in the Himalayas.

When is the best time to climb Mount Everest?

Some experienced climbers say that there is always time to do it, however, the most friendly period for such climbing experience is from April to June when so called “climbing window” opens. It is the best time to attempt an ascent to the summit. This is the time when the nature awakens so the trail to the Base Camp can be very interesting taking a biodiversity of plants into consideration. In May however, which is said to be the warmest month in the region, some clouds may appear that deprive you of beautiful views. In fact, it is almost impossible to predict the weather but if you do not like cold, may is an ideal month. That is the reason why every Everest expedition organized by us starts in April and finishes at the end of May or at the beginning of June.

How long does it take to climb Everest?

Climbing on “the roof of the world” as Everest is sometimes called is not a calm trekking. It definitely does not mean a stroll along picturesque snow-covered slopes and for inexperienced or with a minimum risk of an illness people it might be even dangerous. That is why acclimatization in the Base Camp may be quite long and last up to 40 days. During that time climbers are cared for by Sherpas until their organisms do not get used to the tension and lack of oxygen. Only then is it possible to continue climbing. Usually 50th day is a summit day the most exciting and challenging part of the ascent, especially if the weather is nice. On average, as far as tourists are concerned, the whole expedition lasts about 58 days from the arrival to Kathmandu to summiting the peak. When everything is settled and the climbers feel well, the ascent to the top takes about seven days. The way back to the Base Camp takes about 5 days.

Today we have a very early (approx. 6.30 am) flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (45 minutes). If the weather is good, the views of the Himalayas from the small plane are amazing! In Lukla (2840 m), there will be an introduction to the porters, we gear up and commence our trek.

Day 05 Trek to Namchebazaar 3440m.

Today you’ll trek around 7 hours to Namche Bazaar, where you’ll spend a couple of days acclimatising to the altitude. You might also get your first look at Everest itself. From Phakding you’ll cross the river and head up the valley, following in the footsteps of the porters loaded with supplies for Namche Bazaar. The trail, lined with blue pine forest, follows the river valley and is especially spectacular in spring when the rhododendron flowers are bright in bloom. Cross the Dudh Kosi River at Benkar, and look way up above 6,000 metres to see the peaks of snow-capped Kusum Kanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). Press on to Monjo (2835m), a good place to break for lunch. From here the walk starts to get a little tougher, with a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. Enter into the national park, cross the river through the village of Jorsale (2805m) and then continue upstream. Cross another spectacular suspension bridge and begin the ascent to Namche Bazaar. Get your camera out as now there will be your first glimpse of the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Taweche. Namche will be your last chance to check your equipment and hire any additional gear for the high altitudes from Dingboche onwards. Namche Bazaar is also the last chance to enjoy the local nightlife or take to the pool hall and video parlours.

Day 06 Rest day for AMS

You’ll stay at Namche Bazaar for another night so that you can properly acclimatise to the altitude. One of the best ways to do this is to take strenuous walk up to a high altitude then come back down to sleep – so there’s an optional walk above the Bhote Khola River Valley towards Thami (3810m). Taking a walk to see both the sunrise and sunset views from the national park headquarters above the village is also a great option. This stunning vista includes a super panorama of the Khumbu peaks and great views of Everest. The national park headquarters are home to interesting displays about Sherpa lifestyle and culture, and the local flora and fauna. Namche gained its importance during the period when Tibetan salt was traded for the lowland grains of Nepal. Rugs, clothing, salt and dried meat still all do a roaring trade in the village centre, so haggle for any extra supplies you might need.

Accommodation: Camp
Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 07 Trek to Tengboche 3860m.

After our rest day we set off trekking again. Within an hour the towering summit of Ama Dablam appears to the east, while glimpses of Everest lure us onwards. The gentle trail crosses the Dudh Kosi river at Phuki Teng where we start the long climb up to Tengboche.

Accommodation: Camp
Meals include: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 10 Trek to Lobuche 4910m.

Leaving Pheriche, we head over dry grazing lands, climbing gradually to Dughla. The surrounding stony wastes are the terminal moraines of the mighty Khumbu glacier, which we climb over to reach Lobuche (4,930m.) a cluster of shepherds’ huts and tea houses.

Hemmed in by high peaks, the early morning sun is slow to reach Lobuche. It first hits 7,161m Pumori, which we head for as we leave the village and skirt the tongue of the Khumbu glacier. The trail gets rougher as we traverse the glacial debris where an adjoining glacier flows down from Changri La. At reaching Gorakshep, we leave our extra luggage in the lodge. After lunch we will walk up to Old Everest Base camp and return to Gorakshep for overnight.

Day 12 to Day 52 Mt. Everest 8848m. climbing period

For the first couple of days, there will be puja ceremony.

Ceremonies mark life. Many come with a birth of a child, a union of a couple or upon death. For the Sherpa, they will not climb mountains without one such ceremony, a Puja. Every sherpa people have a strong belief that each and every mountains abodes realm of gods and goddesses.

The Puja is an important ceremony where we pay respect to the mountain and offer blessings for safe passage before heading up onto Mountain.

Our Puja consisted of a Lama (Monk) and our entire crew participating in prayers, rice and flour throwing, and 3 sips of strong whiskey (just to name a few things from our 3-hour ceremony!). The stupa will be covered in beautiful decorations and sculptures made out of butter and tsampa, with plates full of food and drinks as offerings. It was incredible to witness and to be a part of.

We do forth and back to our various camps on the mountain to fit our body with high altitude and weather we face during the actual climbing. On the day of the summit, we walk early mid night from our final high camp so that we can reach the summit as early morning as possible so that we do get good weather to return too. As the day gets older, the weather in mountain starts to get voilent and we no one wants to be in mercy of the mountain. The time and the oxygen in our oxygen cylinder is very crucial on the day as summit is just the half way of our success. If any things gets serious(time, body fitness, Oxygen level...), there will always be next time if we live and it will be very wise decision to return back for the next day. After summit we will return back to our base camp.

Check list

Climbing Gear

  • Ice Axe: Bring a light weight axe with a pick that will stick easily in hard glacier ice. Attach a light weight wrist leash that is usable for climbing steeper terrain.
  •  Crampons: These must be sharp and must fit your boot perfectly.
  • Harness: Make sure the buckle is easy for you to thread in cold conditions! Gear loops will be useful for this trip as well as adjustable leg loops.
  • Helmet: Be sure you can comfortably fit a warm hat underneath.
  • Hardware: Bring 3 locking and 4 lightweight regular carabiners. It is helpful if at least one of the locking carabiners has a "key gate", like the Petzl Attaché. Bring one handled ascender and one Petzl Tibloc for ascending the fixed rope. You will need rigging material--two sewn 48" nylon slings and 10' of 8 mm perlon should be sufficient. Also include one small 5 mm prussik loop (about 4 feet of cord tied with a double fisherman's knot) for a rappel backup. For rappelling the Black Diamond ATC Guide is good since it can handle ropes from 7.7mm to 11mm. A Figure 8 is an old standby and works on a variety of ropes and also icy ropes. While it twists the ropes more, it is quite foolproof. You might consider both, in case you drop one of them and lose it. Our guide have Ice tool, Ice screws, Carabineers, Locking carabineers, Short-5- millimeter accessory cords, Slings.

Others Accessories

  • Headlamp: Bring a good LED headlamp with 2 sets of lithium batteries for cold conditions.
  • Water Bottles: 2 wide mouth plastic water bottles with insulated covers. A small Thermos bottle is great for cold mornings. Bring a pee bottle too.
  • Water purification: Iodine tablets (Potable Aqua or similar) or iodine crystals (Polar Pure). One bottle of Potable Aqua (enough to treat 25 liters) should be more than sufficient.
  • Utensils: Bring an insulated mug with a lid, a decent sized bowl, spoon, pocket knife and lighter.
  • Backpack: Climbing Backpack: Medium size internal frame pack (60 liter capacity). Look for a pack which is comfortable to carry, very durable, as light as is reasonable and one which has a minimum number of bells and whistles.
  • Sleeping Bag: Bring a sleeping bag comfortable to -20. Down is lighter and much more compressible. Be sure to bring a compression stuff sack. Keep in mind that many of your nights will be much warmer than -20, especially on the trek in to base camp.
  • Sleeping Mats: A stuff sack helps prevent punctures.

Footwear

  • Double Climbing Boots with expedition liners. Make sure your crampons can be adjusted to fit them!
  • Approach boots. Which will work on the trek and approach to Camp 1, and even up to Camp 2 if conditions warrant.
  • Gaiters and Yaktrax or Kahtoola Micro spikes in case of snow.
  • Socks: Three/Four sets of climbing socks.

Climbing Clothing

  • Insulated Parka: Heavyweight insulated expedition parka with hood.
  • Jacket: Lightweight waterproof-breathable construction with a hood.
  • Pants: Lightweight waterproof-breathable shell pants or bibs with full-length leg zippers. ALSO very useful are synthetic insulation full-zip pants, for example, Mountain Hardware Compressor Pants--for evenings and cold summit days.
  • Mid Layers: Fleece or Soft Shell layering pieces that work well with the rest of your clothing. A Soft Shell jacket and an expedition weight long john top will work well.
  • Climbing Pants: Look for construction that provides freedom of movement and/or stretch materials. Fabric should be a breathable synthetic that preferably holds up to abrasion.
  • Base Layers: - 2 synthetic tops and 1 bottom. Zip neck tops are the way to go.
  • Mittens: Fleece mittens with an over mitten. Nothing competes with a mitten for warmth when the going got tough.
  • Ski Gloves: A warm insulated glove with leather palm will be worn a lot of the time.
  • Light Gloves: Polypropylene or fleece. Leather palms handle the fixed line better.
  • Leather gloves or good abrasion resistant climbing glove for the rock sections.
  • Stocking Hat: Wool or fleece stocking hat with ear protection.
  • Neck Gaiter and/or a Buff (highly recommended).
  • Basebalhat and Bandana.

Personal Accessories

  • Eyewear: Bring good sunglasses with side protection. For contact lens wearers, ski goggles with light color lenses (for use at night) might be useful in windy conditions. The ski goggles are essential for all climbers in really stormy conditions and can serve as an emergency backup for broken or lost sunglasses.
  • Vision correction: Bring extra prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses if you wear them. Lens solutions are not widely available in Nepal, bring enough for the duration.
  • Wrist Watch: With alarm and night light. An altimeter watch is useful.
  • First Aid: Hand sanitizer (Purell), moleskin or Compede, athletic tape, aspirin (some climbers take a baby aspirin every day up high) and/or ibuprofen / acetaminophen, Imodium, Band-Aids, antacid, insect repellant, ear plugs, and two rolls of toilet paper in quart Ziploc bags (we will have a supply at Base Camp), small towel, soap/shampoo.
  • Prescription Medications: Antibiotic for upper respiratory problems, Antibiotic for GI problems, Diamox for acclimatization (125 mg tabs recommended; enough for a week or more), Tylenol 3 or similar for severe headaches, Asthma medication, if any history.
  • Skin Care: Sun block lotion (at least #30 protection factor -- have at least one smaller tube (1 oz) that can fit in your pocket) and lip salve. Put your lip protection on a string and hang it from your neck. That way you'll use it. It also works great for your nose.
  • Garbage Bags: 2 or 3 large plastic bags make great liners for your pack in wet weather.
  • Personal Snack Food: The food is great on the trek but you might enjoy a few snacks (not more than 5 pounds) from home and also some drink mixes if you like these to add to your water bottle (let the iodine have 30 minutes contact time before adding). Summit climbers should bring some high altitude snacks they prefer for hard days.
  • MP3 Player and Books: Plan on sharing books with the Base Camp Library.
  • Pee Bottle
  • Chemical Hand Warmers 

Trekking Gear

  • Trekking Poles: Poles come in handy for balance and easing impact to your knees. Get collapsible poles that can attach to your backpack and fit into your duffel.
  • Backpack: You may choose to bring a smaller "daypack" for your airline travel carry on, and this can be used on the trek if you want to carry a smaller (35 liter or so), light trekking pack. You need a pack big enough for your clothes, water, camera, food, etc during the day.
  • Pack Cover: Waterproof rain cover for your trekking pack.
  • Trekking Clothes: Light hiking pants and / or hiking shorts for warm weather down low- NOT cotton. Shirts for hiking on nice days (t-shirts OK, quick-drying synthetic fabric is better.) Don't overdo your trekking clothes. A pair of shorts, long pants and a couple of shirts will do. Some pair of Socks, Underpants/panties/Bra, Belt, Skirt, one set Sport sandals and Trousers, You can hand wash them during the trek as needed.
  • Lightweight Approach Boots: Find a pair that fits and log some miles in them before your trip. A low cut shoe is adequate, but some hikers will prefer more ankle support.
  • Sleeping Bag: Climbers will make do with their expedition bag; trekkers only can get by with a lighter bag rated to -10.
  • Sleeping Pad or Thermarest-one light one is sufficient, you will be provided a thick open cell foam "trekking mattress" (recommend only for camping trek).

Travel Items

  • Duffel Bags: We normally pack all our equipment in two large duffel bags. Make sure they are well labeled with indelible ink as well as a travel tag. The duffels go on the trek/climb with you and will be carried by porters and yaks. Expect for them to get wet and muddy, so rugged, waterproof duffels are good. Bags with wheels are nice for the airport, but the porters and yaks don't like to carry them, so don't bring wheeled bags (or at least not two of them). You will also store some travel clothes at the hotel in Kathmandu while trekking, so a small additional bag with a lock might be handy. Bring 5 large plastic garbage bags to pack gear inside duffels to protect gear from rain.
  • Daypack: A smaller rucksack makes a great carry-on bag for your flight and is useful during the trek.
  • Travel Wallet: Some type of secure travel wallet is a must. Remember a pen for travel documents.
  • Passport (valid for at least 6 months), It is easy to get your Nepal visa on arrival in Kathmandu at the airport bring a passport photo. Bring a copy of the information pages and a couple of extra passport photographs. Carry these in a separate location. You'll be glad you did if you ever lose a passport.
  • Camera: with spare batteries, and film or memory cards, but keep it reasonable in size and weight. Consider a small USB drive to make it easy to share photos with your teammates.
  • Bathing Suit: Towel, Toothpaste and brush, floss, mini hair brush, razor, soap, mini bottle of shampoo, travel mirror, nail clippers etc.
